It is a nice looking spear head, but I am sorry to say, that I think it is newer than you hope for.

You could be right, that the 'green glass' were emeralds, but still quite small, so when you are at it, why not take the rubies as well?

Robert Elgood's next book

Robert is, at the moment writing a book on Indian guns, and I think he must be quite far with the manuscript.
At the same time he is working on a glossary on eastern arms.

Thank you Lee.
